30 feet of Concrete topped with 3 feet of electrified concertina wire... should work to keep out even the most aggressive illegal aliens...  by the way it should not cost 25 Billion to build 1,954 miles of border wall.  US Interstate highways ... the production of a 4-lane interstate highway, costs between $4 and $6 million to build in rural or suburban areas... with property expenses, overpasses, access, and rest areas. (see below for how these costs were figured) Interstate high ways with  lanes of reinforced concrete take more materials than a single 12 inch 30' wall to build... so the wall should be cheaper.

Figure the costs for 2000 miles of concrete wall equivalent to a 4 lane interstate highway using 6 million per mile and you have 12 Billion not 25 Billion... We are being lied to again... Either someone is out of their mind or wants to make the wall appear to expensive to build.  However,  Using the 6 million per mile figure for building Interstate Highways in urban areas, a 30' concrete wall, along the entire border, with all of its access roads, maintenance and border patrol facilities should not cost more than 12 Billion... less than half of what others are quoting.

Come on Mr. Nelson, I sent you a link, let have a normal talk for a change??????

No Political Punts.......

Hank, you and Tif and the rest of our members, opt out to  8 to 6 to 1

And let Mr. Nelson be, that kind of information was over the top, opt it now.

Try speaking in English Henry... what the H are you trying to say? I thought we were in agreement... the Wall should be built ... it is effective as a deterrent and the costs are not prohibitive... they are over stated by more than double.

Pres. Trump also questioned the Establishments cost estimates... the estimates I made are based on similar types of construction... reinforced concrete slabs built over a wide range of terrain types.  12 Billion is more than enough to build a new 30 foot wall with all its accouterments. 

Its none of your business man, the comment was directed to us, not you Mr. Nelson.

 English one on one.

Well Hank... last I checked this is a public forum and the 1st Amendment is still functioning, albeit admittedly somewhat marginally.

Rude, abrasive, and unintelligible posts, add nothing to the discussion... 

 I guess Hank was rude, but my comment was for them, we have work to do, and I am not in the position to explain what my orders are to them.

It is not personal, Mr. Nelson, but if I explain in detail what I stated, then the whole world would know my intention.

Please build the Border Wall NOW!! No more evil / satanic / demonic muslims or their muslim brotherhood members or illegal immigrants from muslim brotherhood countries, or illegal drugs!!

United We Stand with Israel-Yisrael and our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America, Divided We FALL!!

Blessed is a Nation who's our ONE TRUE GOD THE FATHER who art in Heaven Above and HIS SON Jesus-Yeshua Christ and HIS HOLY GHOST ( HOLY SPIRIT ), these THREE are ONE!!

Our ONE True GOD'S LOVE is ETERNAL THROUGH HIS SON Jesus-Yeshua Christ for Today and Everyday Forevermore Everyone!!

Love Always and Shalom ( Peace ) Everyone, YSIC \o/

Kristi Ann

Yep, build the wall !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So America don't turn into a shi*hole

ALERT ALERT

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
